Fantastic

So good! I mean how often do you get to hear poets talk about their work, creative process, and life in this kind of depth?!? I came late to poetry via an MFA in fiction and a long break when my kids were small. This feels like a boon. I’ve been drinking down episodes daily and taking copious notes. I also became a patron. It’s such a generous and amazing resource for poets and people who love poetry.

Totally Effing Cupcakes

Immersing. Open. Potent. Engaged. Bitterkeen. Shelter.

Rachel manages to braid both the intimate, microscope perspectives and crow’s eye view with her relaxed, self-aware and caring approach. She is unafraid to be self-doubting; conscientious yet unafraid; like spears, the conversations fly as if of themselves but never fear the prospect of landing in the mud.

I look forward to each and every new episode. Life goes on hold when they come out. It’s wild that this is free.

Parvenue; OG. Thinker; doer. One who is both anxious and lost in wonder. Rachel has built a museum, a good port in a crap world. Like every awesome and valid creation, it is wrought by sacrifice...and selfishly I am so happy it continues.

Come. Discover new poetry—new art—be inspired to revisit the halls through which you thought you had already passed. Lordy, I buy so many books on account of Commonplace.

6/5 sincerely marked stars. I go totally effing cupcakes over each episode—how could I not?

P.S.,
An ‘interview’ is a stuffed cat.
A ‘conversation’ will scratch your wrist, then eat your anniversary roses•••in the name of freedom.

Just Listen

You don’t need to go to grad school. Save your money and listen to this podcast instead. It keeps good company and provides a stimulating and deeply thoughtful education. I love the intimacy of these conversations and the sense of being a fly on the wall while Rachel queries her guests. Highly recommended!
